We've grown up just a little and want to feel happiness from such small things

The last posts of Japan are coming, after this my blog will be boring again haha.
We went to Sensoji Temple in the morning, it was packed with tourists and students, reminded me I'm no longer a school student (〠_〠) I didn't do anything but sightseeing...DSC_0642 DSC_0615 DSC_0609 DSC_0617 DSC_0613 DSC_0621 DSC_0623  
So Central mesh top; My Gilded Nest necklace

Actually I've tried to write this post days before, but I was having some kind of life problems coming out again here and there, and the feeling was overwhelming I was being so sentimental. I'm afraid I will go overboard with the writing (plus some laziness hehe) so I postponed the idea. I guess as you grow older you tend to restrict people from knowing too much about you, especially about your vulnerabilities. Most of the times the one who can help you out from hard situation is yourself. (Or your family or friends, if they're not having difficult time as well, I hate to disturb people) ƪ(΄◞ิ۝◟ิ‵)ʃ
Now those annoying increasing hormones has come back to their usual amount and I become happy again because on Wednesday morning I'm leaving to Yogyakarta with friends! Jogja is like Kyoto, historical city, and the food is real delight and really cheap. Really. I think when I'm home my mom won't recognize me at all. (*ノ(○○)<*).

You can smile that forgotten smile

DSC_0506Mount Fuji greeted us in the morning!~♪
I went to the indoor onsen at 4:30am, simply because I don't want to see anyone naked and vice versa. I was supposed to have a really good sleep after that, but my heart kept beating hard in excitement so I only managed to feel roughly a 2 hour nap, before and after getting on the onsen. (Don't worry I had nice sleep during the way to Tokyo!)
Before reading the whole post you might want to set the mood?

I had a walk alone before breakfast time (Japanese in disguise attempt #2). Immediately after I stepped out the hotel I saw an ojiisan at his front yard gardening. He saw me and I wanted to say good morning but was too scared (of nothing, really this girl is brave in anything but social approach) so I just smiled (ಥ).
I'm kind jealous of people who live around here, it's really peaceful.

Found this place, I don't understand why it was forbidden being farther but I just want to use the stakes for taking photo, yes, tripodisation when I have no one to take picture of me ԅ(≖‿≖ԅ) . I know it's quite risky because the top of the stake was sloping.

My first morning walk felt really good.
But you know Aokigahara Forest right? The famous suicide forest that is located at the base of Mount Fuji. I took a picture of a random announcement board on my way and when I already arrived at home I just remembered where Aokigahara lies. Thanks to my over thinking self I made an assumption that the announcement could be one of 'Value your life, don't suicide' sign and hurriedly asked my almost-Nihongo-fluent-friend what the words on the board meant. Apparently it was a notice from the hotel that they're not responsible for any loss and so on. Oh, okay. Blame why they wrote it in Japanese....Besides who wants to build a hotel near place full of corpses.
By the way, Moslem friends, happy fasting! ★⌒(oゝω・`o)

Real chocolate truffles fall

As usual the outerwear is thrifted hahaha; Zara shorts worn insideDSC_0451 DSC_0420 DSC_0499 DSC_0405 Because the weather was bad we were only allowed to go as far as the level 1 of Mt. Fuji. First we went to the tourist information center and watched a short movie about Mount Fuji. There were also cute Fujisan themed souvenirs on the same building  ;___; (why, Japan....) after that we ride the bus again and stopped at the first level. It was cold wearing shorts (੭•̀ω•́)੭̸*✩⁺˚ but still bearable. The mountain was blocked by clouds so I couldn't take clear photo of the peak. In exchange I took photo of myself ✧・゚: *✧・゚:* \(◕‿◕✿)/ *:・゚✧*:・゚✧ (lame excuse sorry).
Japan helped me a lot in toning my calves and making them even bigger. By the way, see my hair? That was what I meant. I'd want a hair like mine too.
Then the bus took us to our hotel. The one we stayed in is still in Fujiyoshida area so we arrived in just few minutes. It has onsen (sadly, only indoor one) and the food was yummy <( ´ ▽ ` )> but this is the end of the post so I shall explain it on the next post! (人◕ ‿‿ ◕)
Okay now I will continue watching Pewdiepie's videos haha

Tell yourself to be myself now

Despite the strong wind, my hair there is still better compared to mine right now (T O T;) was it because the hotel conditioner? (by the way Japanese hotel are so generous soap shampoo and conditioner are all Shiseido orz better than the ones in my home).
So after few hours ride finally reached Gotemba Premium Outlets! It was huge and divided into East and West zone. So make sure you don't lose your map which I almost did. It can fly by itself, really.
There are many expensive brands here, both Japan and international so I thought I was just gonna go with the wind and marvel at the price tags hahaha, but turned out some shops were having sale. Apparently they have Olive des Olive (and freaking Lowrys Farm too and maybe I was too blind to see it on the map and missed visiting the sore. Don't ask. I'm still regretting it ;___;) luckily it was on sale too. Such a delight to shop inside a store filled with (discounted) clothes you love and oshare shop staffs and girls who breathes the same style as you! *A*
By the way can someone tell me why Japan has so much ferris wheel in random places? It's beautiful though.

It's the second day! In the morning it was really windy and not long after it started to be drizzly during my way to Gotemba. We had our lunch in a small restaurant on the roadside. I remember the whole scene was really soothing (plus the song I'm listening to kinda helps the mood) thinking about it kills me right now, I want to go there again so bad (ノ; u ;)ノ
Every time I eat in Japan the meal came with whole set like the picture above. You tell me why I'm still fat despite walking like horse there. And I was the last person to finish my lunch (was still munching on the picture above and dad got bored of waiting for me), almost everyone gave up with the massive portion but I insisted because I didn't want to waste my food (≖﹏≖) besides won't have the chance to eat same meal again haha. I forced myself to eat and in the end couldn't make it I still left 1/4 of my udon. Hhhhh. It was delicious, though!
Next post is gonna be Gotemba Premium Outlet. (´◠ω◠`)
